76 school systems receive funds 

Governor Bob Riley announced today that seventy six school systems across Alabama are receiving almost 11 million dollars that they can use for school construction needs and repairs.  The school systems participated in Pool Bond issues between 1999 and 2006 for capital improvements.  The interest that has accumulated, a total of just under 11 million dollars, is being returned based upon the amounts that each system borrowed during that time.  In East Central Alabama, Cherokee County will receive $67,027, Etowah County, $534,158, St. Clair County, $44,788, Anniston City, $26, 811, Attalla City, $33,591, Gadsden City, $313,329, Jacksonville City, $59,195, Oxford City, $34,874, and Piedmont City, $19,374.  The Public School and College authority approved the release of the earned interest during a meeting on Sunday.


4 injured in weekend accidents 

An unidentified woman had to be airlifted after sustaining injuries in a two vehicle accident along U.S. 431 near Sand Valley Road Sunday afternoon.  According to police and fire officials, the woman driving a late model Ford Escort collided with a Chevrolet tuck driven by an unidentified man. The woman was airlifted to University Hospital in Birmingham. The man was transported to Gadsden Regional Medical Center.  No other information was available.  Two people injured in a one-vehicle wreck near Altoona Saturday afternoon were flown from the scene by helicopter to a Birmingham hospital, according to Alabama State Troopers.  24 year old Robin Hasting,  and 21 year old Crystal Hasting, both of Altoona, were passengers in a 1963 Chevrolet pickup truck which wrecked on Alabama 132 near Altoona.  The Hastings were flown from the scene of the wreck to University Hospital in Birmingham. They were listed in fair condition.  The driver of the truck, 24 year old Charles M. Kidd, of Altoona, was also injured in the accident.




Deputy found dead behind church 

The commander of the Etowah County Sheriff's Department crisis response team was found dead Saturday afternoon from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Sheriff James Hayes.  34 year old Adam Bryant, had served with the sheriff's department for 12 years and was currently a captain, third in command at the jail. Bryant also served as training officer for the crisis response team.  Bryant was found about 4:30 p.m. behind House of Prayer church on Main Street.  The investigation is continuing.


Rainbow City considering solicitors license 

Door-to-door solicitors looking to make big sales in Rainbow City residential areas may first have to cough up a few hundred bucks for a city solicitor's license.  As a result of complaints from several Rainbow City residents, the City Council is in the process of creating an ordinance that would require solicitors to pay for a license - in the form of a card or piece of paper - identifying them as legitimate merchants before knocking on doors.  Lloyd Matthews, who proposed the ordinance at a council meeting last month, said solicitors should have to pay a minimum of $250 to buy an individual permit and pay a hefty fine if they don't comply.  Matthews said he received numerous telephone calls from residents saying large groups of solicitors were targeting their neighborhoods, selling everything from Caribbean trips to time shares at vacation spots in exotic locales.  Some, he said, were misrepresenting themselves, claiming to be affiliated with reputable businesses or organizations.  Mayor Terry Calhoun said the ordinance will deter sham solicitors from operating in the area.  Matthews said the ordinance will not penalize the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, schools or other legitimate organizations' fund-raising efforts.  He also said a designated time of operation for door-to-door solicitation should be included in the ordinance.  The ordinance, still in its initial stages, would have to be approved by the City Council.
